If you're going to the NY Comic Con this weekend and have a hankering for some Marvel game action be sure to stop by the Activision booth to check out  trailer for X-Men Origins: Wolverine and the first look at Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2.  Activision will also be showing off Prototype, their open world mutant game which looks like two pounds of fun in a one pound bag.  Activision also broke the news that the game will be hitting stores in June.  Kind of wish I was going this year as the show is growing by leaps and bounds.
